    Hi Sidney,

    In order to download the sample AJAX application you will have to expand the r.a.d.controls for ASP.NET panel and click on the HelpDesk.Net2.zip link (see the attached screenshot for details).

    Hi Ivo,

    I tried to create a project from the source.zip but failed to do so.
    Can you kindly provide a copy with a project solution file?

    Thanks,

    Hi Tee,

    The project we are using internally is exactly the same as the one we provide for downloading. How exactly did you fail to use the WebMail demo?

    The webmail source zip has no project / solution file in it.  It has proven to be impossible to get the project going in a buildable way trying to build it from scratch.  Is there anything we can do?

    Hello clayhall,

    The WebMail example is an ASP.NET web site and that is why it does not include solution or project file. You can open and test it as a regular site or, alternatively, create a blank solution in your Visual Studio and then add the sample web site to it using the 'Add Existing Web Site' option from the VS menu.

    Thanks.  The issue now is that the design shows expecting .715 version of the controls and i have .701 installed.  How do i get around that part?

    Thanks.

    Hello clayhall,

    I suppose you have a reference to the latest internal build of Telerik.Web.UI you downloaded (2009.2.715) and it searches for the respective version of the Telerik.Web.Design.dll. The information from this blog post can help you address the design-time error.

    Hi,

    I'm really impressed with the WebMail application and have been using it as the starting point of a project over the past few days. I do have a really big problem with the use of the AjaxManager and RadPane / RadSplitter which is stopping me progressing.

    Simple example of my problem would be to take the WebMail demo and just enable Paging on the RadGrid1 in RadPane2 and trying to get the Grid Paging to work with Ajax causes the problem. I have seen Forums posts suggesting the use of an asp:panel around the grid and ajaxmanager to enable ajax, but this fails to work for me in this example and just causes the grid to lock up.

    Your help in resolving this would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks
    Mark

    Hello Mark,

    I enabled paging for the grid inside the RadSplitter's pane and everything worked as expected. I am attaching my test version of the WebMail demo to this code library thread for further reference.

    You can have this sample as basis for your custom implementation. Note that I used the latest release Q2 2009 of RadContols for ASP.NET AJAX (2009.2.701) in my local tests.

    Hi Sebastian,

    Thanks so much for getting back to me and providing your project.

    You're right it works great in Visual Studio 2008 as .NET 3.5 Website. I have tried to get it to build under Visual Studio 2010 Beta but get the following:

    error CS1061: 'System.Web.HttpBrowserCapabilities' does not contain a definition for 'AdapterGroups' and no extension method 'AdapterGroups' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Web.HttpBrowserCapabilities' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?


    I have read that Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX should work under VS 2010 so would you be able to assist?

    Thanks again
    Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for the report. We were able to reproduce the problem. It seems to be a framework compatibility issue.
    Please find attached a movie as part of our local tests. The error disappeared when we changed the web site's target framework version to 3.5 and back to 4.0.

    Hi,

    Sorry I spoke too soon.

    Now I have the demo working with VS 2010 and .Net Framework 4 but the problem with paging mentioned above appears again. In simple terms if you run the webmaildemosite.zip provided above the Ajaxified paging fails.

    Hope you can investigate.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Hello Mark,

    We were able to reproduce the problem with paging.  Also we tested the WebMailDemo with a standard update panel (without AjaxManager) and the problem appeared too. That's why we believe it is a common asp.net ajax 4.0 issue.
    Nevertheless I forwarded it to our development team for further investigation.
    In the meantime I suggest you use .net 3.5 as a target framework or to disable RadAjax (EnableAjax property of RadAjaxManager set to false)

    THIS IS WHY I DECIDED NOT TO USE TELERIK.

    THE COMPUTING WORLD IS SO ANTI - VB. IF YOU ARE GOING TO PROVIDE SAMPLES FOR C3, YOU MUST DO THE SAME FOR VB'rs. I TRIED THE CONVERSION AND THERE ARE IMPERFECTIONS IN YOUR CONVERSION TOOL THAT I COULD NOT GET IT TO WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
